FCCB Challenge Me Monday!!!!!

Hi everyone!!! I pray that you are all doing well. I know that for me it has been somewhat crazy here around the house with all of the things that have to be done for Christmas!! I am so completely behind!!!
Well, today at FCCB there is another challenge and it is all about ribbon. The challenge is called Rolling in Ribbon and I was very blessed to have some ribbon given to me from My Craft spot to use in my project this week!!!!!!!!
Here is my project:
Just a simple one page layout. I was able to use the vintage christmas ribbon with Vanilla, Cranberry and Toadally green from My Craft Spot. I simply kept the ribbon crinkled and used it as a hanging piece ( Well so that it looked like it was hanging!!)



I used Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge for the Ornaments and presents . That is about it and I am sorry to keep this short but with Christmas and all I am super busy!!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

FCCB Moday Challenge!!!

Happy Monday Bloggers and Welcome to Little Creations for the Cricut!!

I hope that you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Sorry for the recent absence but I am back now and I even have a quick project for today!

Today is Challenge Me Monday over at FCCB and todays theme is Holiday Cards so I hurried last night to get this out. With the holiday and family and shopping I didn't even get home till yesterday afternoon!!

Here is my project:It is my first Gateway Card, I had never made one of these before. This was a really quick card. I think it only took me about 20 min. I used Joys of the Season Cartridge for the Wreath and Peace!! I had never used this cart before and it is really great for Christmas!! I added some eyelets in each corner just to give that little extra something.

I wasn't sure how I could fasten the card at the opening. Then I found some old velcro and it worked pretty good for the card. It is not so pretty but works good!!

Then I did some simple stamping on the inside…

A Tragic Loss

My Heart has been breaking and the tears just seem to keep coming!! In the picture above is a sweet dear friend who was tragically killed this weekend in a small plane crash. For those of you in Florida I am sure that you have heard the news of a small plane crash in the everglades. This was his plane he was the pilot. This is such shocking news to all because he was such a good pilot and careful flyer!! We are all searching for answers and praying that the Lord will reveal this week to give closure especially to the family!
Ryan Ruano had to have been one of the funnest, sweetest, happiest people I have ever met. That smile on his face was a permanent fixture!! He lived his life to the fullest never missing a beat!!! Always doing the things that he loved and having a blast doing them!!
I moved to Florida when I was 19 and after a week of being there I met the man that I would marry Kevin!! Well 3 days after meeeting him I decided to walk down to the local hardware store where he worked…

Book Lover Challenge at FCCB!!!!

Hi everyone and welcome to Little Creations for the Cricut!!I am so psyched today because it is my first day as being apart of the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog design team. If you haven’t checked out their blog it is a must! This great team has something everyday for the paper lover in all of us!! Each Monday is a challenge me Monday and today happens to be Monday and so the challenge has begun!!!This weeks challenge is titled Book Lover. All you have to do is create something about books or with books. Well it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to make for this challenge. In fact I chuckled somewhat because I thought that this was pretty tough for my first challenge! LOL!! I was going to just do a layout but for some reason I didn’t want to so then I came up with this:Some of you may be wondering what this is exactly so let me explain. I am a homeschool mom and I have a 7 yr old son who is really starting to read quite well. In our school he has several books that he h…

Halloween fun and some exciting news!!

Good Morning!!! The day after Halloween is always a slow one especially when it comes on a weekday. My kids are so glad we homeschool because I let them sleep in on this day!! We stayed up late after trick or treating watching Captain America!!!
Their costumes were really cute this year. For months now my 7 yr old has told me that he wanted to be Thor with the hammer so we finally go to buy the costume and when we get there he spots another one and throws Thor down on the ground and grabs......

WOLVERINE

He is so funny!!! He was so excited when he saw this costume. Thor was history after that. My daughter however is getting older and it is getting harder to figure out a costume. I saved the day this yr and thought up the idea of an 80's girl and she loved it!!!

Happy Saturday with an exploding box!!

Hi everyone!! Well I am back this past week was wonderful! We had a great time in Webb Alabama seeing one of our favorite speakers!! If you have followed me for any length of time you know that my husband and I have been trying to conceive and God really spoke to us this past week and we are excited about the future. We believe that God is getting ready to bless us with a little one!! I will keep you posted on that!!
Now onto the last post. I had put up a blog poll for the E2 and the winning thing was question and answer but then I only got one question and here it is......
phillychick said... I just tried to cut a card from gypsy to E2 and it would not weld. Is it
possible to weld from gypsy to E2?

Thanks,

Dian Dabek Dian, I personally do not have a gypsy so I am not the expert on this question for the E2 however I searched around for you and found if you go over to Creations by Christina that she has a video series on connecting the gypsy to the E2!! Thanks Christina and Thanks Dian fo…

Here are the results of the Poll!!!

Good Morning everyone!!!! Ok so I put a poll up on the blog that was asking what you all would like to see about the E2 and the most requested thing was just having a question and answer about the E2.
So that is what we are going to do today!!!!!!!!!!!

What Questions do you have about the Expression 2? All you have to do is leave your questions in the comment section. I will leave this post up until tomorrow evening and then I will go through and answer all of the questions on the next post!!

I am sure a few videos will come out of this! LOL!!

One more thing, I will be out of town after Sat for several days so there will not be a new post after Saturday until late next week!!! We are going to see Kris Vallotton!!! yey we are so exciting he is the associate pastor out of Bethel Church in Redding CA. This church is doing amazing things in the Kingdom of God and he is doing the work that God has commissioned us to do!!!! I will tell you all about it when I get back!

Thanks everyone!!

E2 video: Using scraps of paper for layering!

Hey guys! Today’s tutorial is about using scraps of paper for making a layered image and putting the paper where is needs to be on the mat so that you can cut it all out at once. I hope you like it!!!

Getting those layers to line up on the E2

Here is another quick video!!!!

Video 3 of the E2 series: Image Placement!!

Hey Everyone here is another video. Todays video teaches you how to place your image any where on your mat!!  I use a piece of scrap paper and am able to put the blade exactly where I want it to cut.I wanted to cut this white decorative frame from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge for my butterfly to sit in the middle of.I had a scrap of paper from a mess up that I did and I wanted to use it for these frames!! After pressing a few buttons my E2 cut exactly where I wanted it to. Here is another Butterfly!!One of the things I didn’t mention in the video is that you can get even more precise by changing your setting to one quarter inch instead of one half an inch. I may post another quick video on that !! Enjoy and let me know how it works for you!!One of the things I didn’t mention in the video is that you can get even more precise by changing your setting to one quarter inch instead of one half an inch.

Layout using CTMH Art Philosophy!

Good Morning Bloggers!!!! It has been alittle while since I have posted! I have been enjoying my brother and his family lately. They recently just moved down from Upstate New York.  Moving from there to Easter Tennessee is a big move. It has been great spending time with them and it is also funny to see them experience the south! 
Well here is a quick layout that I did using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. One of the things that attracted me to this cartridge is the differents backgrounds and borders that this cart has and of course the flowers!!! 
I used some scrap papers that I had and then coordinated some bazzill cardstock to go with it!!. I inked everything of course. I glimmer misted my flowers!! Then I tried my hand at some rubber stamps that I received from CTMH. Now I am new at stamping and I didn't do the greatest job but I was ok with the turn out!! It is hard to see here but I also used some stickles on the stamps and flowers!!
Is there anything that you would like to…

Fun Layout and a Birthday Shout out!!!

Good Morning bloggers!!!!It is really starting to feel like fall out there!! This morning it was 59 degrees! I am actually looking forward to seeing the colors of the leaves this yr. I am a summer baby so I can get pretty sad when it is over. Ok, so here is a layout that I made last week. This is the first layout that I have made using CTMH stamps. These stamps were loaned to me so I am not exactly sure about the name but I think it was called Cherish flourishes. Here is a lookie:Sorry that I cut the bottom off but there really isn’t much more just the last part of that punch border!! I will do better next time! LOL!!! I have not done the journaling yet.I cut the orange flower with my cricut using the Walk in my Garden Cartridge. I cut two of the daisy flowers they only have 6 petals. I wanted a fuller flower so when I cut two I placed them in between each petal and that gave the look of a fuller flower. Then I glimmer misted them and after they dried I took my pencil and rolled the p…

Just showing you all some svgs I have created!!

Hello again I was going through some of my files that I had designed awhile back and I am actually contemplating the idea of starting to design again. It has been awhile but I do enjoy doing it. Of course I have the cricut so I cannot use these files. :-( !!! So basically I guess I am wondering if you all thinkthat I should start selling files again? I uses to sell my files with another website that was awesome!!! But my life took an unexpected turn and I pulled out of the site. Plus with that I sold my old machine and bought the cricut. Anyway here are a few of my older files I would love some feedback from you all!!! Thanks

Here is a great beach title for a layout!!!

Here are a few Halloween ones:
And then here are a few random ones:
Remember comments are encouraged!!!!

Some ebay ventings, and concert pics!!!!

Well, I have learned a very valuable lesson in the last 2 weeks. Let me tell you the story. I have been really wanting to get the E2 so I started looking on ebay for one and low and behold there was plenty of them on there and many of them were selling for right around $200.00. Most of them were being sold by proudparents who I am suspecting to believe is actually provocraft. I have bought from them before and gotten Cartridges at killer deals. So anyway I started bidding on a machine and thought at first I was bidding on one from Proudparents and then quickly realized I was bidding on one from someone else. I got a little nervous and quickly looked up their feedback. Well they had great feedback and even had a very satisfied customer who had just received her E2 and only paid $220.00. So I felt alittle bit better and waited to see if I was going to win. Well guess what I did win!!!!! For right around $200 I was so excited!!!!!!!!! Then last week I get an email from ebay saying that t…

Hi Everyone, so how many of you have heard the buzz about the new CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge? I know that I have and I really want one so….. Tomorrow night I am having a CTMH party. This will be my first one that I have hosted and even went to. I have known about CTMH for awhile just never got around to being at one of the parties. Well when I got a look at that cartridge I said that is it I gotta have me one of these!! LOL! So for the Party I wanted to show some CTMH stuff but I wanted to have a party for Cricut also because I know several woman that have not even heard about the Cricut, ( I know crazy right! lol! ) or that have one but really haven’t done anything with it. So at the party the consultant will do the CTMH stuff and I will be doing some Cricut stuff. Here is one of the projects that I did for the Party. Now Granted, I only used the cricut for the little sign or label on the top of the drawer but never the less I used it. This was a great tutorial that I got o…

I will however be on the blog this week . I am participating in the Grillin blog hop this weekend!! I am working on that project this afternoon. So we have been having so much fun here at our house and that is what has had my attention lately!!! First of all we got a Pool!!!!! YEY YEY YEY YEY!!!! So here it is right after Kevin and I and my dad got it up. It wasn’t too hard but you definitely need 3 people.Kevin Making sure everything is level!! This is a pool from Sears that is a lot like the ones at Wal-mart. We could not find the size we wanted at wally world so we bought this at Sears. It is a 24x52. Here I am being silly, but as you can see there are a lot of wrinkles in these pools so you have to get in and as the water starts filling up you walk around and get all the wrinkles out. It really was not…
